An impressive shot this: 650 Yards with open sights vs. a 24 inch round steel plate.

I wonder what kind of load and bullet he is using? Anyone know what mould makes a 480 grain minie?

This is obviously a lot longer range than anyone’s ever shot at the Fort, are there any skirmishers out there who have met or exceeded this effort?
